The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Writers are an odd lot. Yes, I know, statement of the century. But seriously. We wander around graveyards with the express purpose of stealing dead people's names, space out of conversations to contemplate which innocent character we're going to murder next, and hurt ourselves on purpose so we can "know what it feels like".

Concept Art and Phony Color Wheels

Embarrassing story time. (Because that's obviously the best way to start a post.) You know how I spent the last few months whining about my art class? Heralding the end of it in January as my salvation from the drudgery of modern art? Claiming how free I would be, and how I was NEVER going …

Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and a Cool Little Fish Child

Heeeeey, guys... I'm totally not embarrassed about failing to post last week. Are you embarrassed? 'Cause I'm certainly not. *cough* There was a reason though. See? I'm not completely lazy. The reason, guys, is... None of your business. Moving on. This week, I was racking my brain for the easiest things to post about so …
